55+ Best Christmas Baking Recipes

The Best Christmas Baking Recipes

So far, one of the single advantages of 2020 seems to be that it is flying by. This means Christmas will be here sooner than we know! 

The holiday season can mean different things to different people, but for many people, the arrival of Christmas means it's time to get baking. Though Christmas is still a ways off, it's never too early to start making plans for your Christmas baking adventures.

There is plenty to think about in regards to your Christmas baking. Who are you cooking for? Are you baking for gifts? What kinds of treats should you bake? After you've figured out these answers, you may want to practice the recipes you plan to use in order to perfect them before Christmastime! (This may just be an excuse to eat Christmas treats all year long, but we won't tell anyone!) 

If you're ready to plan your holiday baking, or if you just want to drown your sorrows in cookies for a while, check out our list of the best Christmas baking recipes.

Easy Gingerbread Recipes

Okay, I know gingerbread should be with the cookies but this treat is so distinct and reminiscent of Christmas that I thought it deserved its own category. Whether you're making a traditional gingerbread cookie, a gingerbread man, or a gingerbread Mickey Mouse, you'll find the recipe here!

Best Christmas Cakes

Cake may not be the most classic choice for a Christmas dessert, but honestly, I can't understand why! (Although it may have something to do with the infamous nature of fruit cake. Say what you will about it, I'm still including a fruit cake recipe.) I promise if you try any of these delicious recipes, you will have a new Christmas go-to!

Christmas Pie Recipes

We love a delicious pie after a Christmas feast. If you're looking for something a little more festive to spice up that after-dinner delight, check out these Christmasy pies the whole family will adore!

Best Breads for Christmas

No baking list is complete without a few delicious loaves of bread and Christmas breads are some of my absolute favorites! Cranberry, Peppermint, Ginger. Oh My! You cannot go wrong with a warm loaf of bread on a crispy, cool morning.

Other Holiday Baking Recipes

There's so much more to Christmas baking than cookies, cakes, and bread! If you don't believe me, check out these bonus baked goodies to serve up at your holiday party (or just to make for yourself on a cozy night in.)
